WMVX (1570 AM; "Nossa Rádio 1570") is a radio station licensed to Beverly, Massachusetts, USA. The station is owned by Costa-Eagle Radio Ventures Limited Partnership, a partnership between Pat Costa and his chief investor, The Eagle-Tribune.[2] WMVX broadcasts in Brazilian Portuguese and airs Christian programming provided by the International Church of God's Grace.

The station has been known by the call letters WMLO, WBVD, and WNSH. Its studios have been located in Danvers, in Salem (at Pickering Wharf), and on the second floor of a hardware warehouse in Hamilton. In 2011, Willow Farm, Inc. sold WNSH for $400,000 to Costa-Eagle Broadcasting. In March 2011, Costa-Eagle changed the station to "Viva 1570". The format changed from tropical music, simulcasting Costa-Eagle sister station WNNW, to Spanish Adult Contemporary. On November 26, 2012, the call letters were changed to WMVX.[3] The station switched to its Brazilian Portuguese Christian format in July 2014. On October 8, 2014, the New England Revolution announced that WMVX would become the team's Portuguese-language flagship station.[4]

In January 2013, WMVX was granted a U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) construction permit to increase day power to 50,000 watts.
